Berries Galore Blueberry Bush Care
Plant Berries Galore Blueberry Bush during the spring in a hole twice as large as the plant’s root system in loamy, moist, well-draining, acidic soil that is amended with sand/peat moss/coco coir. The soil’s pH should vary between 4.5 to 6.5. If planted en masse, space these berry powerhouses approximately 5 feet apart. Preferring full to half day sun, this shrub requires minimal care.
Growing Berries Galore Blueberry Bush
A sloped spot with good drainage protected from the elements will suffice as a good location outside to plant this shrub. Producing fruit at three years of age, Berries Galore Blueberry Bush should reach its maximum yield at around six years of age. A midsized shrub, this bush will grow to five feet. This plant can be pruned annually during the winter months with the goal of creating space for the inner branches to receive adequate sunlight and air circulation.
Berries Galore Blueberry Bush can be planted as a specimen, part of a border, or en masse. If planting in a container, choose a pot that is at least 2 feet x 2 feet. If repotting, do so annually during the early spring and transplant this bush to a new container that is 1 to 2 inches larger than the old one.
Watering Berries Galore Blueberry Bush
A moisture lover, Berries Galore Blueberry Bush requires about one to two inches of water per week. Before watering, check the moisture level of the soil to avert fungal diseases such as root rot.
Feeding Berries Galore Blueberry Bush
